This was really a full day but a good one. Early on I addressed the World Bank & International Monetary Fund Joint annual meeting. Had a rough time with the teleprompter. One reflector was all screwed up and I had a hard time trying not to get glued to the single screen.

Back to the Oval & the meeting with new P.M. Mulroney of Canada. He has just won a tremendous victory. He’s a super fellow. We got along fine & will continue to do so. He’s all for continued meetings. As part of our meeting we met with several of our astronauts plus a Canadian scientist who will be making his 2nd shuttle flight, and Kathy Sullivan who will be the 1st woman to walk in space. Henry K. came by with more insight re Gromyko. I found we are tracking very close on the approach to take. The meat of the day was an N.S.C. meeting in which I got a briefing on Soviet espionage within our embassy in Moscow. I was overwhelmed by the evidence of high tech alterations in our typewriters which have delivered our top most papers & messages to the Soviets.

Later a meeting with Bonnie Consolo—the lady born without arms. She is a charming, tiny woman totally at peace with herself. She is going to work in Army Procurement. Finished the day with the Supreme Ct. It is traditional for them to report in when they return from summer recess. Tomorrow off to Ohio & Wis.
